It has come to SimpleTire's attention that Yokohama Tire Corporation (Yokohama) has issued a recall on the following tires...
The following statement was released on November 19, 2018:
Yokohama Tire Corporation (Yokohama) is recalling certain Yokohama RY023 tires, size 295/75R22.5 (14G), that have DOT date code 2318. The rubber compound may be incorrect, possibly resulting in the tread separating from the casing. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 119, "New Pneumatic Tires-Other than Passenger Cars."
Yokohama has notified owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the tires, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began November 29, 2018. Owners may contact Yokohama customer service at 1-800-722-9888.
SimpleTire urges anyone who has purchased these tires in the last few months to please check the production dates on the sidewall of the tires. The DOT Code is easily identified with a small oval circling four numbers.
If the tires you purchased fall within the recall dates, owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
